    I have been checking this site for the last few days and noticed a lot of good answers for questions.

    I have Monarch Pump that I hooked up on my 1981 3/4 ton Chevy Pickup.

    I have been having a few problems with raising the plow. For the first couple of places that I plow I have no problems, then the plow does not want to raise, it will angle left and right with out a problem.

    Any ideas on what to look for to see what the problem is?

    Thanks for the help

    My Dad has on of those pumps on a 1968 W200 Dodge. We had it rebuilt at a local Hilow/ hydalic shop. Works great now, but we never use the tuck anymore. Its just siting outside, and the local kids decided to bust all the glass out..:eek: :realmad:

    i used to use them for all my trucks .and i have repaired them too.what happens is the gears on the internal pump are most likely worn out.and the motor brushes are most likely worn out. you most likely have a m683 neg ground unit you can tell because the coils and valves are inside the reservoir. don't bother trying to fix it . go to northern tools and get a barnes snowplow pump for approx $650.00 i think barnes pumps are still used by boss plows they work great.
